Apex Legends has been a huge success for Electronic Arts topping 25 million players and two million concurrent players.

The game has set a new record on streaming service Twitch for a battle royale title. The game hit 8.4 million watched hours over a 24 hour period. This is higher than Fortnite's 7.2 million watched hours during the season 5 launch last year.

Just downloaded it yesterday. Much better than Fortnite :)

Honestly, I don't think that's a very high bar.

Definetly 1 of this year's biggest surprise!

With this one, I don't feel as frustrated as I did with Fortnite, and I feel like I enjoy it much better. I'm not a PvP person so I suck badly at it, but of all the Battle Royales I've tried, this one has clicked with me the most.

The battle Royale base is fickle and probably the largest genre in gaming to be actually influenced by streamers. Good to see competition.

They be crazy not to bring this to the Switch


VAMatt (on 16 February 2019)

Do we know if the switch can run it reasonably well? If it can, I'm certain will see a switch version
